Every year, we remind our members that we offer medical priority to households with members who rely on life-sustaining equipment.

Please let us know if you rely on life-sustaining equipment such as respirators or dialysis. In certain situations, such as planned outages, we can notify you ahead of time of the outage so you can make needed arrangements.

Despite our best efforts, an interruption in electric service may be caused by any number of events, such as accidents, storms, etc. Therefore, our members who rely on life-sustaining equipment should obtain emergency backup systems, such as batteries or generators.
